An exhibition featuring the director of the first Godzilla movie, which was inspired by the U.S. hydrogen bomb test at Bikini Atoll in 1954, will be held this weekend at a Tokyo museum exhibiting the Lucky Dragon fishing boat that was exposed to fallout from the same nuclear test.

The exhibition at the Daigo Fukuryu Maru Exhibition Hall from Friday to Sunday will show the script used by the late Ishiro Honda and his storyboard for the film. The movie depicts a monster from the deep that is awoken by the bomb test and comes to attack Tokyo.
